No matter how you view the electric vehicle products, passion, understanding, and capabilities of large automakers, there’s no doubt that the car world is electrifying a great deal. Whether they see electric vehicles as the future and are trying to lead the way, or have weak long-term thinking abilities and are simply complying with regulations the best they can (while complaining), practically every automaker is now offering or developing a plug-in car (or a bunch of them). We’re reporting on plug-in car announcements from major automakers almost on a daily basis.
Today’s story is another one with little initial information, but which is very interesting and enticing nonetheless. Jaguar, known for creating some of the most beautiful and luxurious cars on the planet, has trademarked the name “EV-Type.” (Info from Auto Car via Green Car Reports.)
Update: “EV-Type” was actually trademarked (and reported on by sister site Gas2) quite awhile back. In 2014, Gas2 also wrote about an electric Range Rover that is reportedly under development.
Jaguar currently has an “F-Type” sports car, and also has a historic “E-Type” roadster. However, its first electric car is expected to be based off of the F-Pace crossover, the company’s first utility vehicle.
Aside from design director Ian Callum’s “It’s coming” response to a question regarding the company’s first electric offering, though, very little is known.
Range? Price? Acceleration? Autonomous driving features? Production timeline? No, we don’t know about any of those things yet, but now we have an initial article to reference back to as we learn more about Jaguar’s electrification attempt. 😉
